In 1969 Hamilton was invited to participate in the Art by Telephone exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. The artist decided there were interesting possibilities in trying to create a painting through a series of instructions given over the telephone. A young American artist, Ed Paschke, was instructed: Get a coloured postcard in the Chicago area of a subject in Chicago, Either get it yourself or, if you are worried about the aesthetic responsibilities of choosing something, ask a friend to provide it.
